I liked how this tree shows the changing of the seasons, with its still-bare old branches, its dangling gum balls and the tender green of new growth at its base. I liked how the trunk is swaddled in ivy. So much going on---splots, swaths, arcs, curves, dashes and dots.
It took me a while to get in the flow of trees, but I got there. You can see all 31 trees, from oldest to newest, in the 2006 Trees Photo Album at left. Saturday I start a new topic. See you then.
